Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have made a massive statement as they embark on a summer transfer overhaul despite seeking new investment in the club.
That of Jurgen Klopp have struggled tremendously this season and are currently in 10th place with slim hopes of qualifying for next season Champions League.
Many pointed to a lack of investment on the pitch coupled with the sale of arguably their best player Sadio Mane as two big reasons why they are underperforming.
It’s clear that the Reds need to improve their team, especially in the midfield area, and according to a recent report in The temperature it should happen this summer.
He says Liverpool are ready for a ‘massive transfer review’ which would represent a ‘statement of commitment from FSG’ given they put the club up for sale back in November.
The news could mean the US owners expect to stay in control as they could only attract bids for a minority stake in the Merseyside giants.
“No firm offer” for the club
Despite announcing their intention to sell first, Liverpool have not attracted as much interest from potential investors as their rivals. Manchester United.
This may explain FSG’s reasoning behind their desire to invest more on the pitch this summer.
According Athleticismthe Reds haven’t received ‘any firm offers’ and three months into the process there’s still not much interest.
The report said: “If we were to compare Fenway Sports Group’s (FSG) attempt to sell Liverpool to selling a house, it might be time to try another estate agent. Because three months and… not firm offers, not much buzz.”
Whether FSG keep control of Liverpool or not, what is vital is that the club keep manager Klopp.
Recent reports suggested he could walk away given their poor campaign, but the German manager insisted he was the man to turn the tide.
A potential new arrival that could help bridge the gap is the teenage sensation Jude Bellingham.
East Liverpool interested bringing the England international to Anfield after his World Cup breakthrough in Qatar.
However, they will face competition for his signing of real Madrid And Manchester City who could also be more likely to offer Champions League football.
The next few months are huge for the Reds and will go a long way in defining their long-term future.
